2009 Hyundai Elantra Question: If the trans. computer stops responding, can it damage the transmission?

After 54000kms, our transmission computer stopped responding. We took it to the dealership, but now are concerned, since it is such a new car with low mileage, can this problem potentially damage the transmission? For now its under warranty, but i don't want to have problems once the warranty is finished, because of a manufacturer's defect with the computer. Thanks for any help!!!

    The computer is needed for the trans to work correctly, luckily that car here in the US has a great/long warentee.Hyundai as a car manufacturer put a lot of free technical information and workshop manuals on line for Hyundai owners. Check out www.hmaservice.com lots of great information.
